Thanks to those of you who responded. I will take a look into the sites that I was directed to and also their information. I am searching for a close friend of mine and really hope to come up with some good info and input for him. A kind, deserving and considerate friend who has always wanted a set of pipes of his own. I, for information sake, am a chantey singer with a National Historic Site big boat project going on for the past 5 years. Launching her in a few years with pipes would be a wonderful thing. Thanks for sharing and again any more info or direction will be greatly appreciated.
